Is this species of any woodworking use.

There are more than 900 species of Eucalyptus - but the most common one in the UK is Eucalyptus Gunnii (Cider Gum) because of its tolerance to below freezing temperatures. From internet images of bark, leaf, fruit, flowers - I believe this is what I have in my garden. Before consigning decent-sized lopped-off branches to recycling or firewood - can these dense, heavy and plain-grain branches be used successfully in either woodturning or carving?

Eucaliptus has reputation for cracking and splitting, the only piece I had the sap wood shrunk so much you could see daylight, looking along the grain
